Online Conversation: Writing for One-Hour TV Dramas

About This Campaign

We at the WGF are sad to hit a pause on our live events, but thanks to technology, we’re aiming to provide more access to advice and knowledge from film and TV writers working in the industry. Over the next few weeks, we’re hosting free Zoom panels about craft and all things relevant to writers.

For this session, join TV writers/producers Alfredo Barrios, Jr. (Magnum P.I., Burn Notice) and Y. Shireen Razack (New Amsterdam, Shadowhunters) for a discussion on writing for one-hour dramas. They’ll chat about episodic structure, writing for network TV, and their tips for getting hired in a writers room.

Panel starts at Noon PT.

Space is limited so RSVP now. After signing up, you’ll receive information on how to access the Zoom panel.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at

The Writers Guild Foundation

Campaign to Support The Writers Guild Foundation

Founded in 1966, the Writers Guild Foundation is the premier resource for emerging writers and movie and TV lovers in Hollywood. Boasting a busy calendar of high-value events and a vast, seemingly bottomless toolbox for writers, the Foundation is unmatched in its mission to promote and preserve the craft, history, and voices of screen storytelling.  A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we’re proud of all we do for the community, including our Veterans Writing Project, our Volunteer and Mentorship Programs, our Archive, and the Shavelson-Webb Library – the world’s only library devoted entirely to writing for the screen.
